Synopsis

Storyline:
Porn store owner, Pete, orders some new stuff from his supplier, Niko, but Niko mixes up the address with the address of the local Barclays Bank. Here, newly-weds David (the bank’s assistant manager) and Penny Hunter is shocked when first photos, then films and then finally two girls are sent to them in the Bank’s flat. They, and their friend, head cashier Brian Runnicles (who slowly starts to have a nervous breakdown), have to deal with getting rid of the porn without letting their boss, Mr. Bromley – the bank’s manager (who’s very anti-porn), the local police in the form of Inspector Paul, and David’s mother, Bertha Hunter, in on what is happening…

User Reviews: This adaption of a British stage play in entertaining enough, and a nice traditional farce in many ways.

With a nice central performance from the dearly missed Ronnie Corbett this film has many funny moments.

As other people have said in their own reviews I think this material probably would have worked better on stage, and suffers somewhat in translation, but it makes for an enjoyable enough 80 minutes or so.
